Sandy River Spey Clave Casting Class

There is only a few of these spots available, and they are on a first come first serve basis.

"I took this afternoon clinic at the 2016 Spey Clave, and was able to get the basics down in very short order, even though I was starting from scratch. Mark and his small team of competent instructors rotated among the students, providing one-on-one instruction that was worth way more than this review can ever articulate. If you're brand new to 2 handed rods, or need to fix a few bad habits, $10 is a steal for the professional feedback you'll receive in this clinic. Sign up quick...last year's clinic was totally booked before the event!"
